On some webpage it said SMBUSMASTER0 was the value for CPU tem[. That seems to be correct. Like you I use openrc-0.17 and maintain a lot in a local repo called "oldgentoo". BTW, the chip is obviously not frozen.
Re secrecy by MSI: WTF? You can download free "speccy" for Windows and read all these these fine, so they always find out from somewhere. Perhaps they read the BIOS? I'd sure like to know how to do that, but it seems like a massive disassembly project. Come on MSI, Gigabyte et al. Just release a Linux binary already. It's not the nuclear launch codes.

Video card is running much cooler than with the Pinnacle Ridge. All that air moving in the case must help it.

With -j17 I finally hit 4.03Mhz when compiling gcc. Temp topped out at 160 F
Not much overall change, however(from -j8 )
Code:
real   103m20.654s
user   268m32.000s
sys   32m2.600s
I'm pleased with the halving of build time compared to the Athlon X4. But I also, wish that it would idle slower.

I have just changed from ondemand to schedutil . Meh!
I could use a little desktop or panel app to switch manually between powersave and performance.

This seem to work until I can write a little Dialog Box with radio buttons.

/usr/local/sbin/gofast
Code:
#!/bin/bash
for n in {0..15}
do
   echo "performance"> /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu${n}/cpufreq/scaling_governor
done

/usr/local/goslow
Code:

   echo "powersave"> /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu${n}/cpufreq/scaling_governor

World update completed
Code:

user   1990m23.876s
sys   160m17.288s

Disappointing but still can do an overnight build
Power drawn from Schneider APC during "gofast" 212W. During "goslow" 72 watts.

243w probably equivalent to my 212W because my router and cable modem are remote. I wouldn't be surprised if they drew 30W from the wall. the wallwarts get HOT!.

Yup, fair warning.

This is now reality with the most recent AGESA update that is only starting rollout with mainboard manufacturers. So PCIe-4 is only for >=X570.

Hows the cpu working in day to day usage? Any problems/concerns.

Everything is working great, save some sensors still not showing up (which is only a minor annoyance that I'm sure will get fixed as software is updated).

I've done heavy compiling, playing CPU intensive games, etc.

For all of the talk about the x570 chipset getting hot, even with 5 drives and a nvidia card (granted, only running at 2x speeds), it runs pretty cool.

I'm still using the pre-release BIOS that came with my mobo (0411, dated 6/15/19, which isn't even available on the asus download page - currently serving 1005), and I know some things have been tweaked with newer versions, I'm just waiting to make sure they actually are stable since my system has been very stable as is.

Haven't voted in this, but I'm planning on getting a Gigabyte one in the future for several reasons:

1) this model I've found has no stupid LEDs (a rare occurrence)
2) I already have an AM2 one from them and it's lasted a decade with very few issues; everything on it works and the BIOS update routine doesn't have any obnoxious win32 dependencies.

I'll be sure to document every tiny thing wrong with with the firmware when I get it.

wifi seem only to connect with a speed of 6 Mb/s on the linux-5.3.16-gentoo kernel and on the 4.19.86 the speed is 300mb/s. not sure who is lying
on the 5.3.16 the dowload speed is higher then the 6mb/s but feels slower then on the 4.19.86 kernel
for the leds i use the Borealis Asus Aura Sync and a kernel patch for i2c_piix4

I have a Gigabyte x570 Aorus Pro Wifi, 3900x, G.Skill TridentZ 3200mhz, Aorus Gen4 NVME, Crucial P1 NVME, Gigabyte RX 590.
So far everything is good. Had some quirks with VFIO, but they are good now with the newer firmware (F10 Confirmed).
One oddity, I dual boot for gaming, and it seems when I would switch back and forth, the NVME drives would change with identifier they used (nvme0/nvme1). Switched to partid, and everything is good.

Other than that, it rocks, and was a worthwhile upgrade from my i5-2400/Gigabyte board. Been running it since August '19.

I'm very close to hitting the buy button, any objections to this list? https://geizhals.at/?cat=WL-1274063

In short - I like small systems, and the only compromise I am willing to make is µATX - where board availability is really meh:
AMD Ryzen 9 3900X
ASRock X570M Pro4
G.Skill Flare X black DIMM Kit 64GB, DDR4-3200
Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 5700 8G

I'd love to get the 3950X, but it is a 60% premium for 1/3 more cores.

I was negatively impressed with their BIOS support in the past, that is regarding how long they take care of their product with updates, but I can't say I have experience with ASRock in that regard. I have heard good things about them in the past though.

Actually Hardcore Overclocking text description wrote:
TLDR: good enough for stock or overclocking upto a 3700X.
To add to that, he also mentions in the video that there aren't many options, upgrade to a better ATX or ITX. As well as at ~24:43 "if you're running a 6 core or 8 core CPU, this board is perfectly fine. Even if you're overclocking." He waffles around a bit after that regarding the cost with 6 or 8 cores. He eventually seems to settle on "fine with 8 cores (with overclocking) but not 12" (but seems to indicate 12 is OK without overclocking).

Why so few choice for x570 mATX ? :? Is Asrock the only option for this chipset in mATX?

On my old Gigabyte board (an AM2+) I updated the BIOS from stock to get an extra core unlocked. It was a bit scary (big red flashing "don't turn off the power", followed by the update doing a hard power cycle via the RTC without warning!) but at least it didn't require Microsoft crapware. After that, it's been mostly stable for 10 years. There's supposedly a redundant backup bios feature but I've never had to use it. I'm apparently missing newer updates too, but they only add support for faster RAM than I have installed.

I'm hoping to have to touch this machine as little as possible, just want a boring workstation that'll last as long as the previous one did. With any luck I'll have some hard data soon.

(My first Gentoo was on a PC with an ASRock board. I wasn't particularly impressed with it - no updates and lots of feature crippling since it was an Intel - but they've probably improved in the last 16 years...)

mATX seems to be dead unfortunately. I'm less concerned with the 'overclocking' aspects of the review, however I agree it is not good enough for the price. Another option would be to get a really good B450 mATX board for € 100,- less and a passive heatsink - but now I'm already back to the original plan of making a no-compromise mITX build.

Maybe it will change with X670 chipset ? I really hope because I don't want to change my case (fractal mini) to fit ATX. And miniITX is nice but I really need 2pcie x16/x8 + pcie express.
Or maybe like you said a good B450 mATX.

8O This is what I need to upgrade. :o
I wonder what it is like to build for arm (beaglebone) with qemu-binfmt on this beast.

Are APU drivers stable on Linux ? With the Ryzen 3400G for example. Anyone using it ?
